AASLH Advocacy Alert

by AASLH on

National Endowment for the Humanities slated to be cut by approximately $60 million over the next ten years.

AASLH is a proud member of National Humanities Alliance, and urges all history and humanities supporters to act now.

With the sequester now in effect, the budget of the National Endowment for the Humanities is slated to be cut by approximately $60 million over the next ten years. Title VI potentially stands to lose an additional $36 million from its already decimated budget over the same span. Other federal funding for the humanities will be cut by similarly significant amounts. Now is the time to urge your elected officials to replace the sequester with a balanced approach to deficit reduction that will preserve crucial investments in humanities programs.

Act now to preserve humanities funding. Tell your Member of Congress to replace the sequester with a long-term, balanced approach to deficit reduction.

Write your representative and senators today.
